The Kids Will Love This Tree Trail Walk, And It's Free

The Kids Will Love This Tree Trail Walk, And It's Free
Over the next two Saturdays, Orla Farrell, creator of the Irish Tree Trail film series and founder of Ireland's Easy Treesie - Crann project, will take families on a little walk along the Dublin Tree Trail.
Organised by the Irish Environmental Network, the free event, which takes place on 18th and 25th May will see experts chat about the dozen or so native trees along the route, and there will even be a little planting ceremony at the end.
During the walk, participants can ask questions and really get to know the trees of Ireland.
The walk forms part of the UN-backed worldwide trillion tree initiative by Plant-for-the-Planet.
The goal is to plant one million trees by 2023 with Ireland’s school children. So far, children across the country have planted an incredible 15,008 trees in parks and public land, including Malahide Castle Demesne, Newbridge House Demesne and Tolka River Valley Park.
The trail will take place in St. Anne’s Park and walkers are to meet between the Red Stables (just to the left as you face the courtyard) and the children's playground.
Car parking is available at the Red Stables or on Mount Prospect Avenue, Clontarf or on All Saints' Road, Raheny.
The walk is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies apart from one area with short grass which can be skipped. A raincoat is recommended as the event will take place rain or shine.
